    Getting Mini E-Revo, got couple questions

    I'm planning on buying one asap! But i have a couple questions

    1. Does it perform in grass well? My rustler runs in our grass pretty well but not the best. I'm wandering how the e-revo will do compaired to it.
    2. How do you like them?

    Thanks for the help!

    1. it should do fine in grass as long as it isnt too long.
    2. Tough to say since no one has theres yet. There are a couple of people with amsoil slashs and they seem to like them.

    Your asking questions about something that nobody has yet, that's like asking what are the lottery number sthat are coming in tonight, I will go get them. After someone has the truck, they will be more then happy to answer your question. But I guess yes, they will run through grass, because my wife's 1/18 scale MMbaja runs through grass. it will be OK!!!!!

    I would say the E-Revo stands a better chance of getting through the grass. It's tires are larger. The Slash, on the other hand, who knows. I don't think either truck will be happy running consistantly in the grass, all of the time, at least not without a gearing change. Watch those motor temps. My old Rustler VXL handled grass okay, but even so, I wouldn't do it all day long. If my 1/10 scale Slash struggles in the grass, then I'd say the 1/16 Slash VXL will not be very happy in the grass either.

    I got mine already man its a blast..I have to say this, "We scaled everything down except the power" It does the same thing as the bigger revo and goes over the same things as the bigger revo...

    the e-revo is actually close to the same ground clearance as the rustler, just it's 4wd so it's probably a lot better

    Don't worry about it man, there are a few who have the mini erevo..
    I have the mini slash and I think it does very well in the grass!
    and being the revo has bigger tires it will do even better..

    yea that's what i was thinking, plus it 4wd instead of 2wd so it won't spin the tires as much as my rustler does
